The Charlottesville NEDA Walk was a success! And PHEW am I glad it's over!! Lots of stress off my shoulders:) We lucked out with a beautiful 70 degree (windy!) day. We had a great turnout and raised over $1000 at the event itself through registrations, donations, and raffle tickets. That brings our total to just under $10,000 (!!!!), and I'm hoping for some last minute donations to bring us up to the 10k mark! We had around 100 walkers and a great bunch of dogs wearing cute little . . .
Did you watch the Oscar's last night? I thought Ellen did a great job. Lots of beige and nude on the Red Carpet, which usually aren't my favorites, but I liked a few! There were TONS of amazing dresses! Here are my picks. (images from hollywoodlife.com) Amy Adams Cate Blanchett Emma Watson. (I'm obsessed with her.) Jennifer Lawrence. Kate Hudson. Lupita Nyong'0 Maria Menounos Jenna Dewan Tatum What were your favorites? . . .
Y'all, I don't know if this actually qualifies as Lentil Masala. The texture isn't as creamy as some of the dishes I've had in restaurants (could probably be remedied with some coconut milk!) and truly I didn't even look up what goes in a real masala. BUT I used Trader Joe's Masala sauce so that's what I'm calling it. It smells divine. (shout out to Matt for the inspiration :) ) Directions Prepare 1 cup dry lentils according to package directions. In a very large sauce pan, sautee . . .
It's National Eating Disorders (NEDA) Awareness Week. This year's theme is "I Had No Idea..." to raise awareness about the major damage that eating disorders pose to those that have them as well as their family and friends. Eating disorders are NOT something small or simple. Eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening conditions that affect both a person’s emotional and physical health. In the United States alone, 30 million people will be impacted by an eating disorder at . . .
1. It's Holding You Back If you're focusing too much on your body, your diet, and your workouts, you won't have enough space in your brain or time in your day to focus on the other things that truly matter. Your career and relationships can't flourish if your mind is preoccupied. Your insecurities could prevent you from going after something you want. Your fears could mean missed dinners with friends or turning down a date with Mr. Perfect. Let go, and see how far life can take you. 2. . . .
One of the most common concerns in the emails I get is about eating "junk food" during recovery. People tell me, "But that food isn't good for me!" You SHOULD eat junk food in recovery! People are very concerned with their health, to a sometimes orthorexic extent, and want to feed their body with nutrient rich foods. I get that. I lived that. There is SO much health information out there now about kale-this and super food-that, that it seems that the ONLY purpose of eating is to . . .
Clothes sale #2 = success! There are a few more pieces still unspoken for, and a few that are newly available from others backing out, so get over there if you're interested! **************** I've created a little bit of an editorial calendar for the blog (meaning I have a sticky note on my desktop with post plans for the next two weeks = most organized the blog has ever been), but today I had to shuffle some things around and fit this post in. Yesterday I ate a looooot and it inspired me . . .

This is a reader request post that I'm more than happy to answer, though I don't know that many people will like my answer. I can't speak for everyone, because people that are binging because they have a true Binge Eating Disorder won't be helped by the same things that helped me. However, I think many of my readers are in the same place I was-- maybe at a healthy weight, but still trying to be fit and thin and so being very careful and somewhat rigid about what is eaten. I was . . .
